Famed Legal Scholar Weighs In On Alarming Allegations Against Hunter Biden

via CBS Mornings

FOX News contributor Jonathan Turley criticized Hunter Biden’s refusal to testify before Congress, calling it “flagrant contempt of Congress.”

Turley highlighted the shifting rhetoric from President Biden and emphasized the implication of the president’s knowledge and involvement in Hunter’s business dealings.

He also criticized the ambiguous phrasing used by Hunter Biden and the Democrats’ defense, stating that there is evidence of influence peddling. (Trending: Kid Rock Rages Against ‘Woke’ Target)

“Hunter Biden said there is no evidence to support the allegation — first of all, no evidence? And then he says the phrase ‘not financially involved.’ My father was not financially involved. Professor, that seems, again, very Clintonian to me,” began Laura Ingraham.

“Well, it is. We are seeing the shifting rhetoric, even from the president himself,” highlighted Turley.

“He stated during the campaign that he had no knowledge, no involvement with these business deals or these associates of his son. That appears to be demonstrably false. We now know that even Hunter’s associates said it was nonsense,” explained the professor.

“Hunter himself said his father had knowledge. But, you have the president sort of caught in the amber of this scandal. And he can’t now deny what he told the public over and over again,” he continued.

“Financially involved could mean in his interpretation, right, that oh my father is not running these businesses, right? He is not directing their moves vis-a-vis the United States. Again, that phrasing is very amorphous,” Ingraham pointed out.

“It’s not just amorphous, it’s irrelevant,” snapped Turley.

“The Democrats have been stating that that’s there’s no evidence that the president benefited from these payments. That’s nonsense. There are federal cases on bribery and other crimes where the courts have said payments to family members do constitute benefits legally for those actual criminal charges,” Turley explained.

“It also implies in an impeachment. I represented the last judge impeached by Congress. He was charged with gifts that went to his family. So, all of that is just nonsense. The question that we’re really looking at going forward is what did the president know and what was his involvement with this influence peddling?”

Adding, “There’s even Democrats in the media that now accept that this was a massive influence-peddling operation. They are just arguing that the president really didn’t know about it. Well, how do you know? I mean, that’s the point of an inquiry.”

Turley described Hunter’s actions as “otherworldly” and suggested that his refusal to testify amounted to “flagrant contempt of Congress.”
